that the u.n. commission of inquiry on syria's chemical weapons attack quote, points to the fact that evidence indicates responsibility at the highest level of government, including head of state. i know that the u.n. report did not say who was responsible. >> u.n. commissioner was talking about war crimes in general, specifically excluded the gas issue. because they had no information about it. they're not allowed, the u.n., presumably, to make a statement about who did what. they can say that there was a gas attack, but they don't want -- by commission, i guess, they're not allowed to say who did it. i don't know why. because i think there's a lot of evidence to be made available. there is sarin, it was used. the sarin that the syria army has has a different chemical component than the sarin that would be made by the front because the army is more sophisticated, has certain additives. certainly someone has looked at that. i don't know why they don't talk about the sarin they have and whether it shows it came from the army or did not. the other thing one could say is the preside
of state. that's not to mention if the 80 eminent people the ed of the eu or the u.n. logistically, very difficult. in terms of mandela, you know, what a man. i saw him many times. he had connections with gadhafi and castro. he really didn't care weather people were in favor in the western world or whether they were popular. he was very, very principled in the fact that if gadhafi, if the libyans or the cubans had given assistance to the anc in times of trouble, he felt loyal. he was very loyal to his friends. he would show the friendship back. what you are going to see is a mismatch of people. hemowho are celebrities, naomi campbell known for her temper and being a hot headed model sitting next to perhaps the head of iran. you know? there's a wonderful image when you can see about tomorrow. i think that is mandela as his p.a. said today, he's bringing people toothing in death as well as he did in life. >> we're looking at pictures of mandela dancing. he was somebody who celebrated life, as well, bringing so many people together. you just can't help but. >> i will and be inspired when yo
is the former deputy president of the south africa and serves as the u.n. undersecrety general and executive director of u.n. women. it is good to see you. >> good to see you. >> can you tell me what ofs it like to work in south africa, in the government. >> specifically under nelson mandela, it was - at a time when we had just gotten into government so everything was new for all of us. we were optimistic, highly motivated, and to work for someone like him, who worked around the clock, you felt that you had to be up and about doing your work, because that's what the boss is doing, and he was much older than you. you had no excuse to be tilered. >> you had so much hope, yet the changes that he faced and you faced as a government were enormous. reconciliation grew out of that. how did it happen. >> when he came out of prison. when he took the step to become the president of the country. he was single-minded about making south africa work for everybody. and to the extent that he made it to reconcile with those that were used to oppress us, he was convinced that it was not too difficult and too
under nelson mandela in the first democratic cabinet. as u.n. ambassador and foreign minister, it was his task to publicly defend the yisent of nelson mandela and other political opponents. privately he maintains he lobbied for nelson mandela's release. >> in 1982 i submitted a memorandum prepared by my department. and to the effect that nelson mandela ought to be released. we were making a bigger martyr of you every day stays in prison. that is international. and status. would be growing to an extent where he would not be able to handle it. eight years later nelson mandela became a free man. here you had a man who spent 27 years in prison and the day he was released. he displayed the - he displayed the cuban and energy to the person. who has been a president before. amazing what this idea, in the minds of people and for that matter, into world affairs. >> and central to the success of the process, that led to a peaceful transfer of power, was nelson mandela's insistence that there need be no losers, that all could win. >> we were not capitulating. you do not capitulate and
the tributes after ban ki-moon, the u.n. secretary general speaks, the tribute by foreign dignitaries, then the president of the united states, barack obama, followed by the leaders of brazil, china and india and then cuba. raul castro. they will all be on this little stage, this little area in front of 90,000 people who have gathered in the soccer stadium so there could be a moment where president obama and raul castro may shake hands, may talk, who knows. >> be interesting to watch if they shake hands. that was the big thing, the gore people wanted no physical contact or substantive communications because of the relationship between the two countries. obviously, you can get as close as we are at an event like that and we will see what happens. you watch something like that. for the former presidents to be together, you know this because you have been at big events, the opening of presidential libraries here at home, the king hussain funeral, you had a group like that. the pope john paul ii funeral, you had several presidents together. it's a security challenge, number one, then the
with the tough sanctions he brought the world together to have the u.n. implement them. and he has said, so has john kerry, military action is not off the table. everyone hopes to avoid that, there's a process here. let's see where if it ends up in six months. i think to not go down this path or to try to stum women at this point only leads to one conclusion maybe some people want that, i don't think most people do. no question, this president understands what a problem iran is to the world. it has to to the united states. and understand that they will end up with nuclear weapons. >> dickerson: a tough time selling his policy in syria to members of his own party in congress what chance does he have on this? >> i think he has a pretty good chance. most people do want to see this six-month process see fit works. and the rest of the world wants it. we are not alone ip this thing. and that's an important factor also. >> giving up the sanctions without getting anything serious is a huge mistakes, very hard to put those back in place in six moisten nine months or 12 months. announced ready to go bac
inspectors from the u.n.'s nuclear watchdog toured the heavy water reactor at iraq. a sign that while there's plenty of scepticism some progress was already under way. robert, the president towed a careful line here. i thought his remarks were interesting. it seems like we're in the middle of what our good friend david axelrod likes to call kabuki theater, confident but not overconfident. i wonder about the deal back and forth between president obama and members of his own congress like bob menendez pushing this renewed sanctions deal. >> i do think you've got the potential collision of a lot of different time lines. the president, i think, is realistic to say there's a possibility of a deal but the deal can long move forward long-term if iranians are willing to do things. if he understands that from colliding time lines politically you've got congressional members from both parties pursuing sanctions. you've got israelis against this deal. i think the one important thing the president has in his pocket, so to speak, the american people are supportive of a deal because they are so incredibl
. largest gathering of heads of state outside of u.n. perhaps ever. we'll have to see how this day goes. and of course, there will be tens of thousands of people, perhaps millions of people, trying to get near the soccer stadium where this event will take place. it begins at 11:00 a.m. local time, 4:00 a.m. eastern time. either supposed to last for about four hours. we understand from the list of speakers that several of nelson mandela's grandchildren will speak, also his co-defendants convicted with mandela in 1963 and sentenced to a life in prison on robben island. one of them will speak as well as heads of state, president obama, president of brazil, china, india, raoul castro of cuba. this country has been friends and allies for some time. quite a day ahead of us, andrea. that's just one day. there will be several days where nelson mandela's body will lie in state at the union building at the national capital here and, of course, culminating event, the funeral in the eastern province. a poor rural area which was nelson mandela's homeland underscoring his very humble beginnings where
presidents, george w. bush, bill clinton, former president carter as well as the head of the u.n. and many others. this will be a massive issue for the government to make this next week a run smoothly. also you've got the millions of south africans who want to take part in bidding nelson mandela a fairwell and tuesday, you'll see the formal memorial service and you will remember this from the world cup in soccer city. they will have three overflow stadiums. the transportation industry has announced that 41 trains will will be allowing people to transport to these stadiums for free on tuesday and there will be some 90 big screen monitors all over the country allowing people to watch that service. that precedes the lying in state of nelson mandela, wednesday, thursday and friday and his body will go in a procession to the capital building in pretoria each morning publicizing the route allowing as many as south africans as possible to take part in that and all of that, fred, precedes the final funeral on saturday in qunu, the ancestral region where nelson mandela is from. there will be a trad
